Tingley Athletic FC Ltd Club Rules

October 2015


The Club is adamant that all players, officials and supporters act in an appropriate manner at all times whilst they are associated with the Club. To confirm this, the Club requires all players, coaches, managers and all parents and carers to sign the “Contract of Conduct”.

The manager of each age group will retain a copy of the completed contract for his/her players and their parents/carers and this information will be available for use by coaches and directors of the Club. In signing the contract the signatory agrees to be bound by the rules of the Club and is deemed to be a member of the club for the period of time until the contract expires (this will usually be 31st August).

Match day fines and Disciplinary Hearings
All parents, players, spectators and officials will be responsible for reimbursing the club in full for payment of any FA imposed fines and admin costs for offences committed.

If a player has to attend a disciplinary hearing and a manager and/or Committee member has to attend the hearing, then each manager and/or Committee member may receive a minimum of £10 per person to cover his/her costs. These costs MUST be paid for by the player/parent and is in addition to the fine received.

Failure to comply with the above rules will be dealt with by the Committee and may involve removal from the club. All cheques are to be made payable to Tingley Athletic FC and handed to the club’s Treasurer as soon as possible to avoid a player being suspended by the club.
